Truly a beautiful expression of boatbuilding art.    And, for some contrast- here is my first build- some 35 years later now hanging in my kitchen.  All lit up for our Super Bowl gala....

Cool!!!   My old redwood stripper canoe was paddled hard for about a dozen years- then I finished a Glen L skiff for my son: 

And then , finally- finished building

the TIKI 30 [with my old Mad River canoe as tender/skinny water fishing boat}

Great stuff.  I love the Tiki 30 but the next build will be the Tiki 26 and the small eastport pram.  I have all plans in my pocket. Hope to start this fall when all motorcycle projects are done ...

Hah Hah- seems many- maybe most, wharram kids are biking it too.   I never got further than an an old knucklehead build,  Now i just push the start button on my Kawasaki Drifter and go....[ok ok - I will be hacking away on some aluminum barstock to create a drop link for the klx 650!]  what are you building?

my life seems to have been a litany of "projects"  .... even today I am finishing the motor cover for the Tiki and muddling my way through roll up slatted decks for our tent's platform across the cockpit- The nice weather has me planning a March launch for a few weeks sail on one of our large reservoirs around here.

Your URAL build reminds me of all the times I fantasized about a canoe /sidehack for one of my bikes...[of course then I would want an outrigger and a sail and a....  LOL!]
